Late at Tate

Last Friday I went to Late at Tate Britain, an evening of electronic noise, crystal radio and crochet in the gallery. I only went to see the Vorticists exhibition before it closed, but ended up staying all evening drawing the fun and strange things going on. And I watched some great wartime documentaries: one was called Nightshift and it was about the women working the night shift at munitions factories. They took dinner in the middle of the night and followed it with ballroom dancing. Now THAT is a lunch break.

Aztec Removals

This came through the door yesterday: the most beautiful and intriguing piece of junk mail I have ever seen.

Cartmel Show

Drawing the cows at Cartmel Show, an extravaganza of farm animals, fancy pigeons, dogs and baking. The cows were paraded round surprisingly fast and I kept having to wait for them to come round again to finish each drawing. Sheep and dogs still to be scanned...
